The ThinkUKnow program aims to raise awareness among parents, carers and teachers of how young people are using technology and how to keep them safe online and when using mobile technologies. The initiative aims to bridge the gap between parents and children and ensure caregivers are well aware of Internet safety issues.
ThinkUKnow sessions are hosted at primary and secondary schools across Australia, with over 600 schools participating to date and over 22,000 parents, carers and teachers educated.
NAPCAN is awarding a 2013 National Play Your Part Award to ThinkUKnow for: ongoing efforts to keep children and young people safe online; through their effective collaboration across sectors creating broad community awareness of issues concerning children’s safety and wellbeing.
